Awesome grilled meat. They get right down to business as you walk in by the grills and pick your meat off the grill. THey have a huge assortment of ribs, chicken, pork, ham, corn and sausage. For me, those are all distractions that could divert your attention from the star of the show - beef brisket. Brush aside all the... More

What is good about this place? The place itself ... cool space. What's not good? Everything else. The guy at the grill who cuts up and serves up your food is ... distracted? apathetic? rude? One thing he is not is friendly or welcoming. The food was mediocre at best and I tossed most of it in the trash which... More

For Brits abroad, the Hard Eight BBQ is ever so slightly intimidating to begin with. You walk into a queue that is overlooked by a large blackboard listing meats priced by the lb. when you get to the front, you're next to a sizzling BBQ, alongside a bloke with a fearsome pair of knives and faster blades than Zorro. You... More

We tried this place on a recommendation from some friends, you pick the meat right out of the pit and they slice it until you say when, watch because they slice fast. You pay by the pound for the meats in the pit and you can order the rib-eye steak each. We tried most of the sides and all the... More

This place is an experience!! You pick whatever meat off the smoker outside,, as much or as little as you want: brisket, chicken, pork, sausage, and backed potatoes. Inside you pick your sides from cole slaw ( mayo based) potato salad, beans, cobblers, white bread and sweet tea. The BBQ sauce is tomato red and creamy with just enough kick... More

On a trip to Dallas for a cowboy game and a friend back home recommended this restaurant. upon research the concept seemed interesting. You order your meat right from the grill and get your sides in side. My wife and I tried a little sampling of just about everything. We tried the chicken, brisket, sausage and chicken poppers. When we... More

Was attending a business conference and needed to escape with a friend for one of the nights. We decided to go here based upon recommendations. So glad we did, as it was truly an experience! The atmosphere is Texas casual as you might expect in a BBQ place. This fits the whole vibe perfectly! I've never been to a place... More

I cannot believe the deliciousness i had in there. You have all the possible options: chicken, beef, brisket, sausages, salads... And of course: beer. Must go if you are in the area.

The BBQ is very good. If you don't want to wait in a long line and have your clothes smell of bbq smoke get it to go.

I had an awesome time in Texas visiting my sister-in-law, and she was kind enough to take me to Hard Eight BBQ near Dallas. I'd never had authentic BBQ and I'm so glad she took me here! I love the initial setup; you walk in, tell the guys at the smoker what meats and how much (they usually have some... More
